    Right. Just for a sec.

    But which player, new or returning, are you excited to see play this new season?

    Fennelly has stated (what we have anticipated) that we will use a 3-guard scheme. So having Jadda on the floor seems a given for attracting interest. But I am looking in a different direction to see how Jensen and, really the one I want to see big improvement is, Maddie do. Maddie actually got some good reviews out of high school and top 60 ranking by ESPN. We could use her shot blocking and, if healthy and working hard with the skills coaches, I love to see her break out as a F/C. Johnson is always a player I want to see.

    To be clear, top 60 post, not top 60 overall.

    Re: Women's team...in color

    I agree on Jensen. I've never seen her play, and she is coming back from a knee that took out her senior season, but the fact that she is 6'3", and there is something about that look in her eyes that makes me think she is going to be a big contributor.

    Re: Women's team...in color

    I am anxious to see how this Hallie and four guards game plan works out. We have a strong back court and that should determine just how good this team can be. It will be interesting to see if Hallie can duplicate or improve on her last season's performance. She is the star and leader and should be double and tripled teamed most of the season. I can't wait for November.

    One way to get beat the double and triple team is to hit threes. I think four guards are going to be able to do it.

    I must have mistaken what Coach Fennelly said. Did he say 4 guard offense?

    The four-out-one-in where Hallie would have limited motion down right or left and the guards would be passing and screening like crazy. If that is what we are looking at would that be an effective use of multi-skilled Hallie? We have the shooters this demands, but it also leaves opportunity for drives. I was mistakenly thinking three guards (or parameter players) like Duke runs. But that requires TWO good posts and we don't have that.

    So it is a four guard play! The four guards then would be Kidd, Jadda, Nikki and ? Is Brynn's ball handling there? From what I see Johnson may be her equal. The season has yet to start. But, like the volleyball team there seems to be much experimentation to be done and conjecturing from me as a fan.

    The Kentucky women have been very successful using a 4 out 1 in offense. They played it two years ago when they play UWGB in Ames. When ran like it should be they were tough to stop.

    And I would suspect if we try it - we will have to press all over like they do. Guarding in the half court may be a challenge. Should definitely be interesting!

    Re: Women's team...in color

    The line-up we will be playing could harken back to the days of truly having multiple legit threats from beyond the arc (Frese, Taylor, Gahan, Haugen, etc.). We are very tough to guard when anyone on the perimeter can score. Plus it could make it easier to get the ball inside to Hallie, assuming that's where she will be (since she is clearly a BIG 3 point threat herself and hoping Ellis, Jensen, or Baier can help out). Angie Welle often had the paint to herself because the opponents had to stay outside to guard everyone else. When she got double-teamed, it would get kicked out to the open player. Not saying that this is exactly what will happen this year, but it would be nice to see us go back to the days when the offense was putting up 75-80 points per game on average.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)
